Seated Twist Yoga Pose

  • Sit with your legs stretched out in front of you on the concrete. 
  • Cross your right foot on the outside of your left leg, bend your left knee, and point your right knee up at the ceiling. 
  • Place your left elbow on the outside of your right leg, keeping your right hand on the floor to keep you steady. 
  • Twist as hard as you can from your belly, ensuring that all sides of your bottom remain on the surface. Hold for a moment before repeating on the other foot.

This pose will give you a great stretch, particularly if you've been sitting at a desk for hours, and it'll also give your shoulders, spine, and hips a nice workout.

Triangle Yoga Pose

  • Start in the warrior pose (point 3), but avoid lunging onto your leg. 
  • With the outside of your left foot, touch the bottom of your right foot. 
  • Reach up to the sky with your other hand, shift your head to look above your hand to the ceiling, and extend your back. 
  • Hold the stretch for a few seconds before switching sides.

This pose is particularly beneficial for achieving a full body stretch; it strengthens the spine, calves, elbows, and ankles, as well as relieving back pain. This pose is especially good for pregnant women.

Tree Yoga Pose

  • Start with the mountain pose. 
  • Balance by keeping your weight on your left shoulder, hips forward, and the heel of your right foot inside your left thigh. 
  • Place your hands in a praying pose and keep it for a few moments.
  • Rep on the other side.

This posture strengthens the spine, elbows, calves, and ankles while improving equilibrium.

Warrior Yoga Pose

  • Stand with your legs about three feet apart, your right foot turning out 90 degrees and your left foot turned inwards slightly. 
  • Extend your arms to the side, hands face out, and your head down. 
  • Lunge onto your right knee while holding it over your foot and away from your toes. 
  • Before flipping sides, aim your attention over your hand and keep the pose.

The legs and ankles are also strengthened and stretched in this posture.

Downward Dog Yoga Pose

  • Start on your hands and knees, shoulder width apart, on all fours. 
  • For added stability, spread your fingers wide and walk your hands forward. 
  • With your knees slightly bent, press your hips upwards to form an inverted "V" with your torso. 
  • Then, in the posture, lower your feet to the floor and step forward.

This posture improves the body's circulation while still stretching your calves and feet.

Mountain Yoga Pose

  • With your arms at your sides, stand with your feet hip-width apart and your weight equally distributed. 
  • Slowly and deeply inhale while keeping the neck and back aligned. 
  • When you stretch, concentrate on your hands and either place them in a praying pose or reach them up to the stars.

This pose will help you to enhance your balance, mental clarity, and breathing.
